—Penny looks the part on the hoof with NFL size, strength, speed and vision. He also produced as a runner, receiver and return man at SDSU.
—Is a very good outside runner (mostly to the left) and has the speed to pick up serious yardage. He has impressive quickness to cut.
—Penny is naturally strong and carries his 220-pound frame well with broad shoulders. He's strong and could see a heavy workload right out of the gate.
—Great touchdown production (25 offensive TDs in 2017) and is an asset in the red zone as a runner and receiver.
—Penny is a patient runner who is scheme-versatile because of his tool set (power, quickness).
—Penny is good but doesn't wow you with any one trait. Might be more solid than special.
—For a shorter back, he runs tall, exposes his body to massive hits and doesn't run through much contact.
—Scouts told us they expect he'll struggle picking up an NFL playbook and doesn't handle football concepts well.
—Is a bit of a one-lane runner at times and doesn't wow you with vision and cutback ability.
Penny's production was eye-opening at SDSU, and he fits the profile of a starting NFL back with his size, speed, strength and quickness. He looks like a solid Day 2 pick with an early starter grade.
